England have made four changes to their team for the must-win third Ashes Test against Australia at Melbourne Cricket Ground.
Zak Crawley, Jonny Bairstow, Mark Wood and Jack Leach all come in for Joe Root‘s side, who have underperformed so far and are 2-0 down in the best-of-five series.
For Australia, captain Pat Cummins comes back in and there’s a debut for bowler Scott Boland, who becomes just the second male indigenous Test player to represent his nation in 144 years – Michael Neser and Jhye Richardson drop out.
